LDS MISSIONARY MUSIC
I am not a huge music guy. Never have been and maybe never will be. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got no problem with people that get excited or relaxed listening to music. After my mission I got some big speakers and put them in the back of my parents’ Oldsmobile that they let me have just to be cool. Believe me, I wasn’t cool. But I had a loud Grandpa car that people thought was funny. After it burned out, I kept the speakers and they are still sitting in my garage. Maybe my kids will use them in the future.
So, I don’t really know what you’re allowed to listen to on your mission and what you’re not allowed to listen to. It’s basically impossible to say, because it varies so widely from mission to mission. I’ve heard some returned missionaries say that they were only allowed to listen to MOTAB. On my mission, my companions listened to a lot of Enya. It seems that she was popular. I never got into that but most of my companions did.
So, when you send your emails asking what kind of music to take, my answer always will be I don’t know. You’re always safe with MOTAB. All kinds of Christmas music was safe in our mission, but may not be in yours. You’ll figure it out, don’t worry.
I liked to listen to classical music on my mission. I had never listened to it before my mission, but it relaxed me on my mission. Missions become stressful and a little music at night was nice…….
So this list is just some suggestions. You might hate this music.

The Piano Guys
Turning Classical Music into Awesome music. I can only assume that piano playing music is ok on your mission. There are no lyrics. It’s just some guys playing some nice music on the piano.
Hymns Without Words
The MOTAB is great, but sometimes it is nice to just listen to the music without the words. This is actually nice missionary apartment background music.
Essential Missionary Collection
Wow – Marketed for Missionaries for sure. I’ve never listened to it though. Try it out at Itunes and see what you think
A Mormon Boy Band singing Hymns? That has got to be allowed…..
Vocal Point: Lead Thou Me On
Like Vocal Point. Nothing dumb to say. I’ll probably get this too.
Day of Rest
Jericho Road? I think I’ve heard of them. Is that a pre-teen Mormon girl band? If it is, you might want to skip this option so you don’t get made fun of.
Called to Serve:
MOTAB at its finest. I think.
Then Sings My Soul
MOTAB at its 2nd Finest?
I would have gone with Hims and Hers
